Radanovich Says Matsui Was Well Liked

Sponsored by:

Northern Californians turned out in droves on Saturday to say goodbye to Sacramento based Congressman Robert Matsui. Matsui had been a fixture in Northern California politics for over a quarter-century. Hundreds of people waited silently in line outside of the Memorial Auditorium for a public remembrance and an opportunity to say goodbye to the beloved public servant. Matsui died on New Year´s day from pneumonia caused by a rare form of bone marrow disease. Motherlode Congressional Representative George Radanovich says Matsui was a competent colleague who was well liked by by his peers from both sides of the aisle. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to call for a special election to replace Matsui sometime this week. The election will take place sometime between late April and mid-May. Sacramento based Assemblyman Darrel Steinberg may be one of the top democrats vying for the position.
